Trunk Show at Pinnaroo

On Thursday Penny Vanderwal picked me up at 7am for our long drive to Pinnaroo in the eastern part of the state.  It is almost to the Victorian border.  We had a booking for one of our Pieces from the Past Trunk shows.  We packed our "shops" and our kits for the workshops and off we went.  There were 14 ladies to greet us, and they were all lovely friendly and welcoming.  They don;t get many quilting teachers coming their way, so it was a treat for all of us. 

Penny did her pin cushion workshops, and I did applique.  We then had our Trunk Show, starting from easy one block quilts to more advanced applique quilts - about 25 quilts in total.  We leave them around for the day so that people can have a closer look and feel.

The ladies made us a great lunch!  Boy these country girls know how to cook!  And they gave us a bag of onions to take home.......

The workshops were held in a communtiy hall that doubles as a museum.  If you are ever travelling that way, pleaser stop in and say hello, and make a donation to the museum.  It is well worth the time.

We left about 3.45.  I was home by 6.30 and I guess Penny was home at 7 pm.  It was a long day.  I was worn out.
